Great moments in history are created by individuals who possess the vision and the will to turn dreams into reality. Some of the greatest moments in California’s history were created by the courageous women that stepped out of traditional roles to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with men to become elected public servants and shape the future of California politics. The legacy of these strong women will endure through Women In California Politics (WICP) and will inspire future generations to follow suit through dynamic educational and interactive programs, and world-class exhibitions.
The fundraising has begun and we are off to a great start with some contributors having already secured their title as Centennial Founders. See our Donation page to see how you can do the same.
WICP is preserving the history of the first 100 years of women elected to serve in the California Legislature and other important women that have shaped the ever-changing political landscape of California. "Her Words", the women's oral history project, of Women In California Politics Foundation is producing high-quality videotapes of oral history interviews in intimate, personal settings with those we are still blessed to have with us. Time is of the essence as some of these amazing women are in their 80’s & 90's. With the support of our Founders we are well on our way. We would like to complete at least forty interviews by the end of 2016! We really need your support now. You too can become a part of history by making a tax-deductible contribution today.
Women In California Politics Foundation is proud of successful colaborations and grant awards that have resulted in protecting and preserving the history of the women that have made so many positive advances for the betterment of the people of the state of California.
I sincerely hope that you are as excited about our continued success as I am, and that you will join us in creating this legacy and making history as we approach our 100 year celebration of women serving in the California Legislature!
With your support, I know that WOMEN IN CALIFORNIA POLITICS FOUNDATION will also endure the test of time.
